And if you are asking....yes, it is a violation to have any ex player talk to potential recruits about coming to his school.


So does that mean that if all your teams coaches are former players you can't do any recruiting?
Wow what a rediculous rule. I can see there being one for giving cars or money to kids but come on I can't see why meeting someone like Rudy or a former heisman while considering schools should be illegal. Plus how can someone prove they intentionally took them to a city 20 miles out of the way from the school on a freeway that goes right through south central LA. I'd say you were grasping at straws.



Come on man, stop posting such stupidity.



Stupidity as in no team would be stupid enough to have all their coaches ex players because of that rule or stupidity because you and the NCAA rules committee never considered that possibility?

Stupid because if you are a coach you recruit it doesn't matter who you once were or were not because you are CURRENTLY a coach. :-t

But that coach would be breaking an NCAA rule right? Does the rule not apply to coaches?

I don't know the answer which is why I'm asking. Call it stupid all you like if it makes you feel more knowledgable about NCAA fball but my UCLA would kill your twice as many loss Mihammy which is all that matters. :-)

USC recruits went to a restaurant owned by a former USC player.

If the former USC player wasn't at the restaurant promoting USC to the recruits then this isn't cheating.

If the former USC player was at the restaurant and promoted USC to the recruits then according to the ridiculous NCAA rules it is cheating.

Just going to the restaurant isn't cheating.

Pretty stupid rule if you ask me. Why can't past players help in recruiting? Seems like the best promotion a college can offer. Some NCAA rules are ludicrous.
